    Comments about ESP LTD SC-608 Stephen Carpenter Baritone 8-String Electric Guitar:

    This thing doesn't look funny like most 8 strings, and plays well, can't go wrong with emg's. I added a second 9v for more headroom, easy mod. I also replaced the nut with a black water buffalo horn nut for added sustain/string transfer and improved action. This this sustains very well and has a little improvement in tone. I can make these nuts for anyone for this guitar. contact my nickname its my email

      Comments about ESP LTD SC-608 Stephen Carpenter Baritone 8-String Electric Guitar:

      This is by far the best 8 string i have ever played, i own a ibanez 8 string and i have to say im kicking my self now for not waiting and trying this one out first. The most common problem with people when the get a 8string guitar is they have a hard time getting use to the thickness of the neck, especially past the 12th fret up to the 24th. There is no problem here it is very easy to move up due to the neck thru. The sound of the emg's cannot be matched i use emg pickups in most of my guitars and soon all because of there reliability and tone. The 808's are the most agressive pickup i have ever used. all around this guitar is the best 8 sting.
